After conducting a successful economic needs assessment in Nakedde, Kitayita, Bembe, and Kanziro parishes of Namayumba Sub County, Wakiso district, it was identified that bar soap making, book making, tailoring, and bakery were the preferred income-generating skills by the beneficiaries. The beneficiaries in Kanziro parish specifically chose fashion & tailoring as their preferred income-generating activity.

The objective was to provide the beneficiaries with robust financial literacy training to equip them with the necessary knowledge to access savings and credit facilities for their chosen entrepreneurial skills. A loans officer from Namayumba Epicentre Saving, Credit, and Cooperative Society was invited to share expertise in financial literacy.

  • Mobilize and train 25 child mothers and young women at risk in Nakedde parish by August 17, 2023.
